Stealing a gris gris will give you BAD mojo.
The young maidens from the Bayou country all go to Miss Watkins to get started on the rite of the "Silent Supper" where the face of their future husband will be revealed.
Of course, if you mess with Miss Watkins gris gris, you will cause confusion in the spirit world!
Evidently this "silent supper" thing was something people actually did at one time. Google it for more info.
The young woman who palys the lead was in one of my favorite episodes of Perrry Mason, "Paul Drake's Delimma". She plays the woman who sings the song, "I Need A Man" over and over throughout that episode.
